MAKING
1. In a skillet melt the butter and sauté onion in butter. Set aside.
2. Heat a casserole, melt the butter and whisk flour over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir constantly and slowly add in half and half. Pour in the chicken stock, still whisking.
3. Bring to boil and simmer for 20 minutes.
4. Add in the broccoli, carrots and onion. Cook over low heat until veggies are tender, for 25 minutes.
